EDIT: I think what I'm looking for is the 'bite' function with '@' in mininotation. But it's giving me a bug when I try to use it this way. See two posts below for a simple example.
Is there a way to pattern pieces or chunks of another pattern? Similar to
select but with a stack of patterns instead of a list of stacks of patterns (like here).
This might seem like a barely-useful syntactical difference, but I keep running into this question when I try to recreate songs, like the "resonance" cover I recently posted in discord. Seems like something that's easy to do on piano or a DAW (copy paste a stack of notes in a region) but hard to do with tidal. Would be really powerful for midi_to_tidalcycles output too!
arrangeDiv 3 "0@8 1@6 2@18" "bd hh sd"
would divide the pattern (or stack of patterns) into thirds and then you pattern those thirds (0, 1, and 2).
I've tried: patterning
fast to move the parts of the pattern around to the right places. This should work in theory but it's very hard to get right .
nTake and state memory would work for this example, but it wouldn't work on stacks and becomes tricky with chords. Also I don't think it can be used on scale degrees.
Also, I wonder if this would work with triangle braces like "bd hh "
